Releasing in December of last year, the PS3 port of Minecraft is off to a good start to 2014 after Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition topped PS3 sales charts for the first month of the new year. According to a post from the official Playstation Blog on Feb 11, the PS3 version of Minecraft was the top selling Playstation 3 title on the PS Store in January.
It’s of little surprise that Minecraft is performing well on the Playstation 3 as sales of the hit sandbox title also continue to rise for the Xbox 360 and PC editions of the game. 4J Studios is also currently developing next-gen versions of Minecraft for release on the Xbox One and PS4.
Minecraft: PS3 Edition is now available as a digital-only download via the PS Store. The game beat out other digital releases such as Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon, Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, and Grand Theft Auto V to become the top selling PS3 game on the PS Store for the month of January.
